Boston, MA (Vocus) January 15, 2009 -- Harvard Health Publications, a publishing division of Harvard Medical School, announces the launch of its redesigned and enhanced website to serve the needs of health-conscious consumers in search of trusted health care information. The new health.harvard.edu offers easy accessibility to the most current practical, authoritative health information, drawing on the expertise of the 8,000 faculty physicians at the Harvard Medical School and its world-famous affiliated hospitals.
"When I became a doctor,'' said Dr. Anthony Komaroff, Editor in Chief and a 35-year Harvard veteran, ''most patients wanted the doc to tell them what do. They didn't ask 'What are my options?' Today, there's an appetite for information and a desire to be partners with the doctor in decision making. That's why it's important that patients get their health information from credible, trusted sources."
"Our mission at Harvard Health Publications is to offer the consumers access to information that will help them make better health choices. Whether someone is suffering from a serious illness, has a chronic health condition, or just wants to know the best ways to stay healthy, we publish health newsletters, special health reports, books, and online health information that helps them find the answers they need," said Komaroff.
The new website offers the latest health news from Harvard Medical School, and excerpts from its monthly health newsletters:
health.harvard.edu features additional health resources, diagnostic tools, and customer reviews of products.
